Ever aince the elections resulted in giving to the democratic party a majority in the House of Repre sentatives of the next Congress the radical party has been delighting itself with the prophecy of discord in the ranks of the majority. We have been amused at these efforts of the radicals to get consolation from their defeat by the honest men of the country at these elec tions. Bat it is not the part of wisdom to rest in security when there is a possibility of danger. We have observed in the South ern press lately a disposition to agitate a scheme for what is known as "internal improvement" before the next Congres**. The ground on which it is to be placed is, we agree, very plausible. The reason, the justification, is the severe suf ferings, the oppressions, the out rages which the radical party have inflicted on the Southern States. The war, like the " Let ns have peace," have alike been Pandora's boxes, filled with the direst evils. From these grievances the South hopes to be relieved, and iu the recoil from iron-heeled oppression to comparative liborty, or at least tho hope of liberty, has induced the people of the oppressed and subjugated States to seek some means for restoring what is called prosperity to the white race. . Under the late teachings, the false doctrines of the radical party, whenever a want exists " the Gov ernment " is to be applied to for its supply. The Government is to be looked up to as the fouutain out of which everything wanted is to be had, and instead of a con trolling power, limited and re stricted by the Constitution, it is made now a sort of country store where anything can be had from a pin to an anchor. The Southern people desire the all Im the ol an The Southern people desire the Government, if we read some of the Southern journals aright, to set on foot all sorts of measures for constructing canals, railroads, docks, wharves, and whatever is essential to the carrying trade. That these improvements are needed we will not stop to discuss. That the Federal Government has the authority under the Constilu iion to undertake any such enter prises, we deny. Tlie traditions of the democratic party, from Jef ferson's day till " the last of the Presidents,' hare been against the power of the Federal Government under the Constitution. It is a very easy effort to stimu late the feelings of aid to the South. We feel, as we write, how difficult- it will bo to repress fos tering a legislation which has in it both mercy and justice. But this is not the epoch in our history when the democratic party can commit itself to emotional legisla tion —legislation which is asked and sustained on the plea of senti ment The Federal Constitution must be reasserted in its primal, original integrity as the supreme law oveç Congress, President, and people. The first, the stern, sol emn duty of the democratic party in the next Congress will be to set np the Constitution of the United States on the pedestal where the fathers placed it, and whatever has been hung on it, or about it, to hide its features or disfigure its form, must be swept away by the power of that Roman virtue which the democracy professes to oherish and obey. All the infamies which have op pressed the South for tho past years have had their origin in the teaching of the radical party that the Constitution was a " covenant with hell." The democracy must resent this insult by making this covenant exactly what the convention of the sovereign States whioh ordained it intended it to be. We trust that our Southern brethren in the next Congress will calmly consider if this is the ap propriate time to begin agitation of questions, or the adoption of measures which in themselves are of such a questionable constitu tional character as to invite objec tion from those democrats in tho North who, in order to spare the South from outrages, have stood by the strict construction of the Federal Constitution as the only safety for that constitutional repte sentative form of government which the radical party has so often tried to destroy. It does seem to us that if dis cord is ever to come among tho majority of the next Congress, pray do not let the nnlimited power of Congress, the higher law, over and above the intent and meaning of the strict construction of the grant of power to the Fed eral Legislature, be the Trogan horse on which this discord is to be admitted into the councils of the party. The Sontb. The great problem introduced into our politics by the admission of the colored people to the enjoy ment of equal rights with the whites is slowly working out its own solution. So far the influence of the carpet-bag element, sup ported by the Federal power, has been able to maiataiu the color line unbroken outside of Arkansas, but there ate not wanting indica tions which point to a growing dis content among the colored people with the present system. The re sult of the carpet-bagger's success has been a course of dishonest legislation which has disgusted the honest republicans of Uie Sontb. Wisdom and forbearance on the part of the democrats will in time break the solid phalanx of the col ored vote and free the South from the nightmare of carpet-bag gov ernment and Federal interference, which at present crushes out the energy from the Southern people aud impedes all progress.— [N. Y. Herald. How to Kef.f a Situation.—B e ready to throw in an odd half hour or an hour's time when it will be Accommodation, and don't seem to make a merit of it. Do it heartily. Though not a word be said, your employer will make a note of it. Make yourself indispensable to him, and he will lose many of the opposite kind before he will part with you. Those young men who watch the clock to see the very second their working hour is np—-who leave, no matter what style of work they may be in, at precisely the instant—who calculate the ex tra amount they can slight their work and yet not get reproved— who are lavish of their employer's goods—will always be the first to receive notice when times are dull, that their services are no longer required.—[Exchange. Australian Race Horses Com ing to America.—A. J.
